How Do I Install OE Identical Oxygen Sensors?
November 8, 2011
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS PRIOR TO INSTALLATION
*DO NOT drop or use an oxygen sensor that has been dropped as this may have caused shock damage to the ceramic cell
*DO NOT use any compounds on or around the sensor unless labeled as oxygen sensor friendly products
*DO NOT use impact wrench or conventional socket type wrench to install sensor
*DO NOT allow sensor or lead wire to touch exhaust manifold or any other hot component
*DO NOT expose this product to water, oil, windshield cleaner, anti-corrosion oil, grease, terminal cleaner, etc.
*DO NOT use leaded fuels, silicone or metal based additives
*DO NOT store under high humidity conditions
1. Remove protector cap just prior to installation
2. If not already coated, apply (enclosed) anti-seize to oxygen sensor threads.
3. Install sensor body ensuring lead wire is not twisted or bent
4. Install all sensors with new gasket supplied and torque to proper specs as below:
-M18 sensors - Install finger tight then 1/2-3/4 turn with wrench / O2 sensor socket 26-33ft. lbs.
-M12 sensors - Install finger tight then 3/4 - 1 turn with wrench / O2 sensor socket 13.2 -17ft. lbs.
A) Flanged applications - (where flange is NOT already installed on sensor) Install flange to exhaust manifold first, then mount sensor in flange. (A copper gasket is bonded to the flange & no additional gasket is required)
B) Flanged applications - (where flange is already installed on sensor) It is important to use the supplied gasket before installing sensor
5. Connect and route lead wire as originally installed
Warning: Anti-seize compound may cause irritation to the skin or eyes. In case of contact, wash affected area with soap and water. In case of eye contact, flush with water for 15 minutes. If irritation persists, consult a physician. If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting.
